The Misdial is a film short that I made during the Video Associaion of Dallas' 2008 24-Hour Video Race. I originally set up a two person team of Megan Blinov and myself. Unfortunately, Megan's car broke down in Waco, halfway between Austin and Dallas and she had to cancel. I pressed on. Luckily, my cousin Jim was available to work on the music for the film. This was my first time video racing, it was alot of fun. Things always seem heightened when there is a clock ticking. The race had a few constraints, a five minute limit, wich I didn't come close to. Also, I had to include a key as a prop. The theme was "A Twist of Fate" and we had to shot somewhere where a sport is played. Once I figured out how to include all of these elements, I hammered out a script. The race was kind of like juggling. There were so many things to consider, what a blast. If there are any events like this in your area, I would recommend it to any filmmaker.
A little ditty bout Cheeseburger and Fries. This video is dedicated to simply the most delicious thing you could ever eat. A cheeseburger and some fried taters. Watch how his delicate fingers caress and devour the greasy sandwich of beefy goodness. Listen as the burger muncher asks, "Break the fourth wall there and hand me the ketchup." Be sure to notice the bottle shake with the cap still on! Amazing footage.
The second installment of ramz.tv has a sampling of a trip I made to the Across the Street Bar in Dallas, Texas. They have had a drum jam every Wednesday for almost 20 years. Hoopers, burners and jugglers have now joined the festivites.
